It's Almost Independence Day: What is Your Favorite Tradition for the 4th?

6 years ago

I love the 4th of July -- it’s the perfect holiday. Combine a day off from work with yummy things to eat, drinks, and fireworks…it just doesn't get any better! I once made a red velvet flag cake (pictured) for my sister's July 4th pool party. Actually, I made two; the first one melted in the 100-degree, Southern California San Fernando Valley heat.

We also have a weird family tradition of playing the Jimi Hendrix version of "The Star Spangled Banner" really loud in the backyard. I'm sure the neighbors love us.

What about you? Do you have a favorite 4th of July celebration? Whether it's food, flags or fireworks, we'd like to hear about it on the Opinion Poll!
